Sell high on Bautista?

Postby Singles » Sat May 21, 2011 3:33 am

Bautista is the top ranked player in Yahoo and is creating alot of buzz. Is now the time to move him? Is he really this good? Several teams are interested in him, especially for his 3B eligibility. Should I start throwing him out there and entertain offers?

Any opinions?

Thanks.

It is a H2H league with 10 teams. Non Keeper.

His power numbers are ridiculous, and that's when compared to last year's breakout season! An Isolated Power of nearly .450, close to 30% HR/FB, and a complete reversal in K/BB numbers -- It all seems a bit too much. I still think that he'll continue to be very good, though not as good as what he is currently pacing. 60 HRs? Probably not. 50 again? Sure. If you can get somebody to offer you a package worthy of a triple crown 50-60 HR player, then seriously consider taking it. Otherwise, I think you have a guy who will pace .300/40 from here on out, which would pretty much make him an MVP front-runner.

I'd have to agree with Frappy. He seems to be doing far too good to be able to maintain this pace for the remainder of the year. I would personally put him out there on the trading block to see what others are willing to dish out, no doubt you will get a couple offers.

5. Cano/Crawford/Choo (Izturis)
6. Halladay/Dunn/Pedroia/Stubbs (McGehee)

I would do it for the right package for example the Combo of (Halladay/Stubbs) from team 6. Stubbs is currently on pace for 25 HR and 50 SB and well its Halladay.
Another package i would consider is (Cano/Choo) from team 5

Don't make any deal your not comfortable with and remember you have all the power in the trade. YOU have the player everyone wants!

keep in mind that in this 7x7 format bautista's value goes up even more since he is likely to lead MLB in total bases and OPS. also keep in mind that in this format the value of top stud pitchers goes up and the value of mid tier (#25-40) pitchers goes down due to league shallowness and the addition of K/BB. with that in mind, here are some deals that look good to me:

team 1: bautista for braun and wilson (assuming that's brian wilson)
team 2: bautista for fielder and weaver
team 3: bautista for hanley and kershaw or hamels
team 4: bautista/KJ for pedroia and halladay
